Nice yoghurt with crisp pieces of apple at the bottom which were not too sweet.

However, it was rather pricey for HK$13.9 because the yogurt cup was small it was not filled to the top.

The Asian Nestle Greek yoghurt version is different to other countries because if you google it the size and flavours are different.

Thanks to the PR for sending me some pear cider by SOMBERSBY.

DSC05045.JPG
A nice way to chill out for Christmas with pear cider which is not acidic as apple cider.

Available at 7-11, Circle K, Vango at HKD$18 per bottle!

The pear cider has a lighter colour and the apple cider has darker colour.

To be honest I prefer the pear because it has a strong sweet pear taste and tastes less of alcohol where as the cider one tastes like Appletize but with a strong alcoholic taste.

Whipped cream is good but alcohol infused cream is even better!!!

These huge canisters of Whipped cream are infused with 15% alcohol content and come in four fun flavours:

Chocolate, caramel, vanilla and strawberry.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com

I got my hands on Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

The great thing is that IT DOES NOT need to be refrigerated.

The alcohol infused cream can go almost everywhere or you can consume it straight from the canister.

I had fun dispensing it on top of jelly and biscuits.

If I could get hold of some scones, waffles or crepes I would definitely add infused cream to it.

It can also be added to drinks as well.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

The cream was easily dispensed but practice makes perfect.

Orange jelly with alcohol infused chocolate cream

Chocolate dipped biscuit with alcohol infused vanilla cream 
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

Chocolate dipped biscuit with alcohol infused strawberry cream

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

These creams definitely jazzed things up, the chocolate was the best, while the vanilla was good paired with biscuits and cakes and the strawberry was good on fresh fruits or berries

The alcoholic taste was really strong which was great for sophisticating things with an alcoholic touch.

The canisters are informatively labelled and they have leaflets with suggested recipes.

I was excited with the new create your taste because some non adventurous countries like Hong Kong get to “Build Your Own Burger” which is great and they have some basic ingredients which are not normally available such as mushrooms.

I was looking forward to the cheese but as expected Chinese people are not a fan of cheese hence the choices do not match up with other countries.

Currently, the build your own burger has been launched in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.

It has been said to be launched in Kuwait but I haven’t been able to google anything yet.

A blooper I discovered while googling "Create your taste hong kong", Maccas spelt as Mcdoanlds!!

Screenshot_2015-07-09-11-54-32.png

Basically the bun choices are the same, but cheese, sauces and bacon vary in different countries.

Singapore has turkey bacon because they do not really eat pork.

The Singaporean, Australian and New Zealand websites were great because you could see clearly the ingredients but the Hong Kong one was not user-friendly and has a small picture to summarize the choices.

I was really lucky to get a bottle of this chili sauce delivered by FedEx from the Caribbean!

A tiny drop really packs a punch, the sauce contains Thyme, brown sugar, vinegar, red and green pepper.

10846457_784640868237627_621766948942627

Quoted from FedEx:

http://news.van.fedex.com/small-business%E2%80%99-hot-pepper-sauce-goes-around-world-fedex

FedEx Express launched its latest multi-market advertising campaign, which shares the story of how a small hot pepper sauce maker from Nevis in the Caribbean, Llewellyn Clarke, can realise his dream—and the dream of so many small businesses—of going global.

More information:

http://www.fedex.com/sg/showtheworld/index.html?cmp=SOC-1002365-4-58-1001-1000000-APAC-SG-EN-FBHALOSHOWAWAR0

About Llewellyn Clarke

Llewellyn started making his hot pepper sauce eight years ago and selling it to the Four Seasons hotel on the island, where he works as a chef.

Product name:

DOLL Fried noodles : Fried garlic and chili flavour.

DSC_7883.jpg

In Chinese it actually reads "bei fung tong hau mei" (避風塘口味) that means Typhoon Shelter flavour which involves fried garlic and chili cooked with crab.

DSC_7884.jpg
There is a sachet of fried garlic and chili with these noodles.

DSC_7885.jpg
After putting water in the noodles for 3 minutes and draining it, I put the sachet of sauce and condiments.

DSC_7888.jpg
The garlic and chili really enhanced the noodles because it had a crisp crunch to it which made the soft noodles less boring but the taste of the noodles overall were way too salty.

Thanks to 7-eleven for sending me these goodies featuring popular Korean pot noodles and Japanese sweet treats.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

For Korean goodies we have: Vilac Cup Rice and Noodle, Ottogi Japchae noodles, Hanil Jajeng Myeon
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com
Japanese goodies there are: Ribon Okinawan donuts, Shoeido Swiss rolls and Koubo croissant buns

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Korean Hanil Jajeng Myeon HKD$17.9:
These were quick and convenient to eat, simply empty the noodles in the box and pour the sauce on top and heat in the microwave as advised.
The noodles were soft and chewy in delicious sweet sauce.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Korean Ottogi Japchae – HOT

Springy glass noodles in sweet and spicy sauce with pieces of beef in it.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Korean Vilac Cup Rice and Noodle – Spicy Seafood $12.9

This is the most interesting cup I have tried, because there was Rice and noodles!!!
It would be great if there was a non spicy version to cater for people who can't eat spicy foods!
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Japanese Koubo croissant buns $12.5
There is a choice of chocolate or strawberry and they were best eaten slightly warmed by heating in a microwave because the paste inside becomes soft.
Personally I liked the chocolate.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Japanese Shoeido Swiss rolls $13.9
These rolls were surprisingly big and filling!
There is caramel and chocolate and both were soft and moist.
It is hard to say which flavour is better because both were good.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Japanese Okinawan RIBON donuts $10.9
There are two flavours: original and black sugar.

Black sugar had more depth in flavour so I preferred the black sugar.

Just Mayo is cholesterol-free, egg free, dairy free, soy free, lactose free, gluten free, vegan, kosher and non-GMO mayonnaise which comes in two flavours Just Mayo and Chipotle Mayo.

I was so lucky to get my hands on a jar of Just Mayo from Hampton Creek Foods!!

DSC_4531.jpg
labvle.jpg
 DSC_4532b.jpg

When I opened the jar, there was a definate mayonnaise smell.
DSC_4538.jpg
The mayonnaise looked thick but it was effortlessly spreadable and the knife glides in it so well.

I tried it on its own and it was so similar to Hellmans but it had a stronger lemony kick.

Anyway, I slapped it generously on my bread knowing that it was cholesterol free.

Plain bread and mayonnaise was just delicious!!

DSC_4540.jpg
Next time I will use it as a dip with chips!!

I am not a vegetarian, but since the Vegetarian version tastes as good as real mayonnaise and good for your health, I would definitely buy Just Mayo!!

Just Mayo will be available in the UK in the next few months, so watch out!

Hampton Creek Foods have also developed this product called Beyond eggs which is a plant-based egg substitute to make cookies and more.

"Numi Organic Tea is a privately owned triple bottom line social enterprise based in Oakland, California. Numi is known for its assortment of organic and fair trade certified teas and herbal "teasans".
The company was founded in 1999 by brother and sister, Ahmed and Reem Rahim. The founders named the company "Numi" after the citrusy, Middle Eastern dried lime tea they drank as children growing up in Iraq. The name Numi is derived from the Arabic word forcitrus." saids Wikipedia.

I was so lucky to get a sample of their savoury teas, organic teas and Dry desert Lime from Green Pharmacies in Hong Kong.

The organic range I tried were:

Chamomile lemon

 Emperor's Pu Erh

Decaf Ginger Lemon
Rooibos (earthy vanilla)
White Rose
Jasmine green

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Jasmine green
(Fair trade certified organic green tea scented with organic jasmine flowers)
The Jasmine tea was nice and pleasant.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Rooibos (earthy vanilla)
(organic roobos)
The smell of this was similar to chipped wood but the taste was not as strong as I expected.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Emperor's Pu Erh
(organic black Pu erh tea)
The pu erh came out strong with a dark brown colour, it's tastes was earthy and strong.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Chamomile lemon
(Fair trade certified organic Chamomile, organic lemon myrtle)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
White Rose
(Fair trade certified organic white tea, organic rosebuds)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Decaf Ginger Lemon
(Fair trade certified organic decaf green tea, org, ginger, lemongrass)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

The latter three were not bad but I am not a fan or floral teas and lemongrass.

You can buy these on their website Green Pharmacies or Citysuper (Time Square, Shatin), Organic stores and Beauty Salons.

Coco glace

Coco Glace is a coconut water jelly served in a coconut shell.

01C1T57FF1B83D17C47D33l.jpg

The lady who sold it to me said it was ready to eat and did not need defrosting but it was frozen rock hard.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Coco glace:

01C1T60F90F49A3D8E6D53l.jpg

This was the first one I had which was frozen so I microwaved it for two minutes and it was quite slushy.

01C1T7EF994E9B8B1DE473l.jpg

It tasted nice and it was not too sweet.

This was the second one I had after putting it in the fridge over night to defrost.

01C1T810FC0BE781E129F8l.jpg

After it has been defrosted, it is mainly coconut water and there is not much jelly in it.

McDonald's have launched a new prawn burger with pineapple and a pineapple pie so tried them.

Whenever the ebi burger (prawn burger) is launched, it becomes a popular choice.

Now they have launched the ebi burger with pineapple, which basically has a slice of pineapple in the middle with the same mayonnaise sauce that they use for the chicken sandwich.

01E3DO5DCA3A16AB1D9622l.jpg

01E3DPBA30308F3164D962l.jpg

The pineapple in the burger was a bit too juicy and stole the show with its sweet flavours.

It was also difficult eating the burger because when you bite into it, you are biting against the pineapple fibres so you have to tear the pineapple.

01E3DQ2C1CB41B08D02083l.jpg

To my knowledge the pies that have been launched before in HK are red bean and taro.

Hopefully they will launch peach as well because that would taste quite nice.

01DY709CAC0306FB475BF0l.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

pineapple pie:

01DY6ZDF0AC92786143A6Fl.jpg

The pineapple pie filling is the same as the apple in terms of consistency and viscosity.

It has the same sort of sweetness as the apple but it has small chunks of pineapple instead and the pineapple taste is not that strong.

I don't normally try Nestle's drumsticks because the flavours are quite boring but I was looking at some icecreams when I discovered they had Hojicha latte flavour.

Hojicha is a roasted tea from Japan with a hint of caramel.

The Hojicha latte icecream tasted quite nice with a light tea taste.

I assumed the whole cone was filled with that icecream but when I got to the cone part it had vanilla icecream in it as well which was disappointing because only the top part was hojicha and the bottom tastes like vanilla icecream with a hint of coconut.

hojichalatter.jpg.jpg
They also have pistachio drumsticks but if the bottom half is not filled with 100% pistachio icecream I would be pretty angry because I love pistachio icecream.

Thanks to Calbee for these fun Potato sticks that comes with a dipping sauce.

DSC_1450.jpg
DSC_1451.jpg
The proper name of this product according to the packaging is:
Calbee potato crunch potato sticks (original flavour) with Mango Habanero Chili Dipping Sauce.

卡樂脆薯條!「芒果哈瓦那辣椒醬」

DSC_1453.jpg
On the side of the packaging, there is a little introductory about the Habanero Chili.

DSC_1452.jpg
So when you open the box, you will find a bag of Original potato sticks and a dipping sauce.

DSC_1457.jpg
 DSC_1456.jpg

It was good that it came with the Original potato sticks because it does not have any other flavours that will over power the Mango Habanero sauce.

DSC_1459.jpg
The sauce was really good because it was spicy with a short burst of spiciness that did not linger followed by a sweet aftertaste.

DSC_1461.jpg
DSC_1462.jpg
I found the dipping sauce sufficient for the whole pack of potato sticks and was the remaining sauce after the potato sticks were finished.

DSC_1465.jpg
I will definitely get these again and hope to see more flavours!!

Cranberry helps maintain bladder health.

VITA 7 is a great source of nutrients.

Elderberry is a good remedy for respiratory and immune system.

Mango Mix is a rich source of vitamins.

DIGEST improves appetite and digestion.

Pomegranate is rich in antioxidants.

Beetroot helps support blood function.

Artichokes and Tomato is a great formula for the liver and gall bladder.

I chose the drinks according to the ingredients I liked and I ended with the Artichokes and the Beetroot.

The beetroot was really wholesome and it tasted sweet, while the artichoke was my favourite because it had a heavy tomato taste.

I was excited because McDonalds launched this black and white coconut pie.

To my knowledge, there has not been a black and white coconut pie but this was served in China last August.

As well as the pie, there are the black and white burgers that are the same as last years.

For the shake shake fries seasoning there is the salt n pepper crabwhich was available a few years ago in oct, 2011.

According to my earlier review, it has a fragrant basil taste.

http://www.openrice.com/en/hongkong/review/causeway-bay-mcdonalds/2199458?con=rvw

Anyway, I went to McD's to try the coconut pie.

It seems that different branches are offering different things, the one I went to only served the pie and icecream but according to instagram some branches just sell the pie only.

The coconut pie was quite nice with a coconut filling that was not too strong and pieces of coco de nata.

01FD7K91DDFFFD3D91C45Bl.jpg

If I had a choice, I prefer it without the icecream so hopefully I can find another McDonalds that just has the pie or wait until the 4th when the pie is fully launched at all branches.

You don't often see dehydrated cantaloupe melon which was I why I had to try it.

Usually the dehydrated fruits you find are mango, pineapple, bananas, apricots and others.

The packaging was really good, it looked like a melon, inside the packet were individual packets.

The taste and texture was interesting, it was chewy but sweeter than the fresh form.

Jfruit is from Thailand, so rest assured there is English labelling and nutritional facts printed on the pack.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on their dehydrated mangosteen!

Thanks to Lemon Tea for these delicious Tom Yum Kung flavoured PRETZ sticks by Glico in Thailand.

DSC_1375.jpg

DSC_1376.jpg

DSC_1377.jpg

The flavour of these were intense and savory, with hints of lemon, lemongrass and they were quite spicy too with a spicy aftertaste.

The hint of lemon was the best with visible herbs on the Pretz sticks.

After eating half the packet, my tastebuds became accustomed to the spices and they smelt and tasted like the savory lemon puffs by the Garden brand.

Got these Non-fried bamboo charcoal noodles by Sau Tao (壽桃非油炸竹炭麵-酸菜排骨湯味) as a gift from a friend and they surprisingly good.
DSC_2825.jpg

The noodles looked a bit plastic when I took them out the bag, but when they were cooked they were delicious because the broth was good and there was a sachet of pickled vegetables which made the noodles fantastic.

There are so many slush makers but this one is exclusive to Vita's VLT.
You can get it for $25 by purchasing $20 more on Vita's Chrysanthemum Tea or Lemon tea at 7-11. Circle K and Vango.

I admit, I was too impatient on my first go so it didn't work.
You have to put it in the fridge for at least six hours!
